Datasette plugin providing a UI for writing to a database


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ pip install datasette-write


Having installed the plugin, visit /-/write on your Datasette instance to submit SQL queries that will be executed against a write connection to the specified database.

By default only the root user can access the page - so you'll need to run Datasette with the --root option and click on the link shown in the terminal to sign in and access the page.

The datasette-write permission governs access. You can use permission plugins such as datasette-permissions-sql to grant additional access to the write interface.


To set up this plugin locally, first checkout the code. Then create a new virtual environment:

cd datasette-write
python3 -mvenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

Or if you are using pipenv:

pipenv shell

Now install the dependencies and tests:

pip install -e '.[test]'

To run the tests:
